City of San Luis Obispo 2014-2019 Housing Element
The Housing Element is a state required element of the general plan that must be updated every five years. Updating the Housing Element is a key step in the City's efforts to expand affordable housing opportunities. The City’s adopted Housing Element will guide housing actions through 2019.
The Housing Element was updated in response to input received through 13 public workshops and meetings as well as other correspondence received over an 18-month period. The update process was a tool to modify housing policies and programs to reflect the changing needs, resources and conditions in the community, and to respond to changes in state and federal housing law.
